Final nun ן The Son of Man died and returned to Glory

The final nun is used for the nun נ at the end of a word. The final nun ן is drawn as a vav extending below the lower horizontal of the Square Letter Template. The vav ו stops at the lower horizontal. They are difficult to tell apart when they are seen in isolation. The key to discerning them is the baseline of the word.

The nun נ, which will be examined later means 'fish', and represents the Son of Man [v 1] [q 1]. [a 1] As a final nun ן, it is interpreted that the Son of Man died (or must die). Because it is in 'final' state, the final nun suggests that in resurrection, Christ was restored to glory [s 1] [v 2]
